Siginon Aviation has been appointed as the official ground and ramp handler for Qatar Airways Cargo at Jomo Kenyatta International airport, Nairobi.

Siginon Aviation’s US$10m state-of-the-art air cargo terminal in Nairobi, commissioned in 2014, has been custom designed to include a 3,000 square metre perishables centre, a 5,000 square metre general cargo warehouse, a 2,000 square metre basement parking for transit vehicles and a specialised storage area for dangerous, valuable and temperature sensitive cargo. Siginon Aviation will be handling perishable products such as flowers, fruit, vegetables and meat that are the top exports from Nairobi: these are destined mainly for Europe and the Middle Eastern countries. For its part, Qatar Airways Cargo recently celebrated ten successful years of serving the cargo needs of exporters and importers, both in Kenya and overseas. The cargo carrier currently operates freighters to seven destinations in all.
